> It feels like a completely different world.
I wonder, what might be your usual places where you engage in social exchange?

The nice thing with slow imageboards is, that you can go back in time by reading older threads. I recently found some of my old posts from 2012 or so on uboachan.

Posting here is a bit more secular, than on 4ch or some chatroom.
> I still feel very embarassed.
Me too. I have a bad habit of writing long posts and deleting them just before I hit the send button, even in a place that is as non-judgemental as sushichan.

What are your experiences with drugs?
Not done any but interested?

Iv been a stoner for the past 4/5ish years and have had to quite suddenly due to finding a job i somewhat enjoy but im due a drug test in the first 3 months :(
Getting to sleep has been a real struggle and im the most aggy Iv ever been.

Acid has to be my favorite drug, best bang for ya buck. 6 hours of tripping for £10 and depending on how you use it you can come to some profound conclusions. I do feel doing so much over a short space of time has kinda changed the way I look at the world, for the better or worst im yet to find out lol.

Ketamine is also fun, its like half psychedelic half downer like weed or alcohol. I went through a stage of doing a few big fat rails every night after work (a job i fucking despised), monging out and watching spongebob. Gud times!

Iv only done shrooms twice but the second time was real bad I was in the country side on a bright sunny day with people everywhere curled up in a ball feeling the most isolated iv ever felt in my life. Strange.

Ecstay/MDMA is fun but not the sort of thing you can do at home by yourself so i only really get to do em when im on a night out and that is very rare. I do have some really good memorys of doing pillys when i was a teenager that i will never forget.

>I just really hate the idea of having even less control over my brain and its chemistry than I already do.
You see, after doing many different substances over the years and now understating the different effects I have to opposite view. to me drugs are like brain 'stabilizers'. If I smoke a joint i know for the next 30/45 minutes im gunna be chilled out, I know if i do a line of ket im gunna be spinning out for half hour. Once youv tried a drug once you sorta know how its gunna make you feel. Sober all sorts of variables out of my control dictate how I feel throughout the day but taking a drug i know the effects of and know how its going to make me feel. In a weird way doing drugs grans me a bit more control over the way I think and feel.

This is what an addiction/dependency looks like, if anyone was wondering.
“I’m not dependent on X, I just don’t like going without it”
“I can stop X any time I want (they can’t)”
“I’m not myself unless I’ve had X”
“X opens my mind, I’m not a full person without X”
“Stop taking X? Thats just what they want you to do! X is freedom!”

A lot of people in my life have had their lives destroyed by addiction and dependence, even on “minor” drugs.

Please don’t do drugs. More importantly, please don’t turn sushi into a druggie board. Lots of boards have been ruined by druggies burying worthwhile moments in endless nonsense about drugs. I don’t want sushi to be like that, it’s the last comfy place on the internet left :(


hahahah your funny. I didn't say any of those things you are quoting. Yes if you consume drugs everyday your are dependent but as long as you can recognize when 'want' turns into 'need' you can still use them to your for recreational purposes. I had a friend that tried acid once, had a wonderful time and has never done it again. Its not as black and white as you think. Its like putting smackheads and somebody that has smoked 'a weed dude' once in the same category.

Often times its the circumstances of the persons life that causes the dependency not the drug itself. If you have a normal healthy stable life and smoke a joint once you are not likely to continue everyday as you have nothing to run from. If you have a horrible life where everyday you come home (if you have one) to family/people that actively make your life miserable drugs are often the most readily available escape.

During the Vietnam war heroin use was rife amongst American soldiers to escape the harsh reality of the horrors they were facing. If they were never sent to war and continued there peaceful lifes at home most wouldn't have even considered touching the stuff.

Have any of you ever spent so much time with fundamentalists that you started thinking characters from the Bible decided to read the Bible itself to figure out what they had to do next? FUCK THE RECURSIVE BIBLE! Also, days were less than 24 hours long in the distant past, "red" was sometimes used in the Bible to describe brown objects, and most Bible-thumpers might secretly be porn addicts.

that is very ominous thank you, I feel welcomed.


It’s whatever you want it to be, really! Just make sure you lurk and post comfily.

I hope everyone has a nice day!


Oh, if you read it like that, lol.
Didn't mean ALL that you see, more what you see of here. I.e, it is comfy people trying to have a nice peaceful time, and it is seen, we don't see lots of people trying to hurt eachother, hence it isn't that kind of place.


Welcome to our laidback sushi bar! Courtesy is our rule and comfy is our game. A chiller chan you will not find. Relax and enjoy the vibes.


then I will chill here without restraint my Lord.

Do any of you enjoy going out/socializing?

Life was pretty much just online friends (gaming) through high school, did a 180 and partied a bunch in college, had a group I hung around with…and now for years it's just been my girlfriend and I. Didn't keep in touch with college people, never pursued friendships outside of work. I still talk to and see a couple of friends from childhood every so often but that's it. I don't even know if I mind very much, but it's something I ponder sometimes.

I used to be a homebody, but I've realized that socializing gives me energy. Strange, I definitely would not have called myself an extrovert a few years ago. I mostly go out to pubs with a small group of friends, but every once in a while I'll go to a concert or convention to meet new people. Gives me creative inspiration.


This will be me in a year or so and I don't know how to feel about it.


File: 1652888641141.png (1.34 MB, 1440x930, classroomghost.png)


Same here. Only my mom ever calls and I have literally just one or two people I talk to through online messengers.

Was a school ghost in grade school because of how little I socialized and never attended any school events. So I don't think any person at schools I've been to will even have any record of my existence except my diplomas.

There have been some former classmates I have ran into at my university several times but they talk to me much more formally/forcedly and distantly now.


When I was in high school a few years ago I excelled at socialization, but since I've left I have only really talked to a handful of people in real life and right now I've got no one since I've lived NEET since. Socialization is stimulating but I need alone time as well, and I feel as though high school was perfect in that when I'd get back home I'd be to myself and I could relax and do whatever. Being NEET is crushing. I went on a date once not too long ago that was very fun but it unfortunately didn't lead anywhere. I could've absolutely had dates in high school since girls were clearly into me, but I wasn't assertive enough and none of the relationships grew beyond inquisitive talks they initiated. Can't change the past though, so its not worth feeling anything bad about it.
I've used imageboards for years at this point but I have begun to use them less and less over time. Most imageboards are highly toxic communities filled with incredibly unpleasant, mentally ill people. I could go on a long rant about my gripes with them, but I don't think most people here would be interested in hearing it.


> but I don't think most people here would be interested in hearing it.
Well I would be interested in hearing it. I am just one person of many though.
I have the same problem too, I go to an imageboard, it looks nice, but there is something that makes it unenjoyable for me. Misogyny, conspiracies, racism, drama, memes, shitposting, general rudeness, not being able to have a proper exchange, the list goes on and on. It is still my favourite format though, I would rather ditch online exchange completely than using something else.

Regarding the topic of the thread, I need a lot of time for myself, but I feel that socialising is good for me. IRL I only get calls from my mother, text messages from my mother too, but also from my brother and sister. Once a month I see my parents, there I see my brother and sister now and then too. Else I have to deal with a bunch of people at work, but that is not voluntarily.
Friends? None, not even online. A Relationship? Neither. I had a cat once, she meant a lot to me, but she died years ago and I just don't feel like taking in one once more.

I get the impression that people here are nostalgic for the "old" internet, whatever that may be. Without the thread devolving into "old good, new bad" and complaining about tiktok/twitter/ect, what are some nice memories of yours from the early days of the internet. Hell, what are some bad memories you have?

>In an ideal free-market system
>But when a company becomes too powerful
the inevitable end of a free-market system is monopoly or duopoly and all the shitty results that come with it. when companies compete clear winners emerge and eventually they have enough power to leverage the government and media against opposition to protect their power.

even though communism might sound cool on paper, it inevitably ends in dictatorship by a privileged academic or military class.
in the same way, free market capitalism will result in dictatorship by economic monopoly.

>real government step in and put regulations in place to preserve competition.
I agree the government should be involved, but I think 'competition' with these sorts of things is misguided. Social media platforms are more like public infrustructure than like a product you buy. It might make sense to have companies competing to provide roads, but we certainly don't need competing roads… if that metaphor makes sense… it's all one thing is what I mean, and trying to break it apart, or treat it like it's not only harms it.


>Censorship is governments blocking websites and sending people to jail over posts on social media.
I actually agree with you generally about monopolies and there being a role for government here. But you have a strange definition of "censorship" if you think only the government can be engaged in it. There's this weird idea I see online sometimes that there's nothing conceptually or morally wrong with censorship as long as the government isn't doing it, which I definitely don't agree with. I think if people took a minute to think about why it's a good thing the government can't decide what you can say, they would agree that it's probably good for private entities to err on the side of not doing the same.
>Apple's privately owned service deciding not to platform certain apps is not that. Neither is Twitter banning you for posting racial slurs.
Those are both definitely still censorship. The question is how much is an acceptable or socially useful amount. I think that many times it's perfectly reasonable to be banning foul language, pornography, outright lies, etc. But people nowadays are a little too gung-ho about restricting things as a way to solve problems.
>Social media platforms are more like public infrustructure than like a product you buy.
I'm actually coming around to this argument. It's silly to pretend like these platforms are "just another private service" when it's effectively impossible to run a business or a political campaign without the use of Twitter, Google, Facebook, etc.


You're missing the larger issue.

Even in the statistically impossible best-case scenario where government a) decides to step in and regulate things, b) manages to not royally fuck up the rest of the web in doing so, and c) doesn't use it as an opportunity to censor everything to an even greater degree than the companies do on their own, we'd still be reliant on a small handful of giant monolithic platforms to house all our information.
